Sasa Yoga is formed by the planet Saturn and is a Panchmahapurush Yoga. It is one of the most powerful and important yoga in vedic astrology.
Sasa Yoga is formed when Saturn is placed in Kendra houses in its own (Capricorn), mooltrikone (Aquarius), or exalted (Libra) sign.
Sasa Yoga can be formed for certain ascendants in certain houses only which are as follows:
- 1st House- In Libra, Capricorn and Aquarius ascendant.
- 4th House - In Cancer, Libra, and Scorpio ascendant.
- 7th House -In Aries, Cancer and Leo ascendant.
- 10th House- In Capricorn, Aries, and Taurus ascendant.
Benefits Of Sasa Yoga
As per traditional texts, Sasa Yoga will bless the native with good health and moral conduct.
The person with Sasa Yoga will own lands and buildings and will be a ruler.
Sasa Yoga is more favorable to bless the native with power and position.
Such results of Sasa Yoga are general in nature and planetary affliction over Saturn will lead to less or negligible results of Sasa Yoga in a horoscope.
Saturn when in planetary association with functional benefic or yogakaraka planet will lead to amplified results of Sasa Yoga.
Some Important Points On Sasa Yoga
As explained earlier Sasa Yoga is formed for the following ascendants:
- Aries ascendant in the 7th and 10th house.
- Taurus ascendant in 10th house.
- Cancer ascendant in 4th and 7th house.
- Leo ascendant in 7th house.
- Libra ascendant first and 4th house.
- Scorpio ascendant in 4th house.
- Capricorn ascendant in the first and 10th house.
- Aquarius ascendant in the first house.
You can see out of 12 ascendants Sasa Yoga is formed for 8 ascendants.
But results of Sasa Yoga will vary for these ascendants due to following reasons:
1. Nature of Saturn for the different ascendants. Benefic or Yogakaraka Saturn will give the best results of Sasa Yoga.
2. Though there are other factors also which need to be considered like affliction over Saturn and Saturn's planetary association with other houses and planets.
But the very basic and primary consideration will be Saturn's lordship and as per that Sasa Yoga will work best for Aries, Tauras, Libra, Capricorn, and Aquarius ascendants.
Though it doesn't mean that Sasa Yoga won't work for other ascendants, if Sasa Yoga is in planetary association with functional benefits for these ascendants then Sasa Yoga will show good results.
For example Sasa Yoga in the 7th house of Cancer ascendant and aspected by Yogakaraka Mars, Moon, and Jupiter then Sasa Yoga manifest fully.
In the case of Shahrukh rana Sasa Yoga in the 7th house with Leo ascendant. You can see that Saturn is aspected by Yogakaraka Mars, 5th lord Jupiter and same time Saturn is Trine to ascendant lord Sun.
No doubt he has enjoyed all good results of Sasa Yoga despite Saturn's malefic nature for Leo ascendant.
Same way for other ascendants where Saturn has lordship over beneficial houses or even Yogakaraka status.
Sasa Yoga may fail to deliver if Saturn and the associated house are afflicted.
The Final Verdict on Sasa Yoga should be done after a complete analysis and having only Sasa Yoga won't make one very successful in life, one needs to have support or other Rajyoga also.
